To celebrate the release, I'll be including a FREE fat quarter of Hello, Ollie fabrics with the first 20 orders. I'll pick out a perfectly coordinating fabric for you!
I envision these prints hanging in an nursery, completing a gallery wall and tying in perfectly with all kinds of fabric creations. I can't wait to see how you use them! Be sure to share with us how you use them by using the hashtag #HelloOllieFabrics over on Instagram!
The Forest Floor Fabrics Blog Tour ended this week and everyone’s projects were spectacular! From backpacks and bookcovers to playmats and poufs – it was so fun to see what everyone made! Many of the projects are posted alongside a tutorial or pattern, so I hope you’ll dive in to the links below and get inspired to start sewing. A few of the projects don’t even require a sewing machine!
Let me gush for just a minute: I want to send a HUGE thank you to each of the lovely ladies who participated. You are all so talented and creative and I was honored to have you on the Forest Floor fabrics blog tour. It’s a very special feeling to see something made with my fabrics and you all went above and beyond with your projects. I'm grateful for each of you and so inspired by your creativity!
I'm especially proud of this collection for two reasons:
First, what makes this collection even sweeter is that it’s inspired by my baby girl, Ollie Doe. It’s filled with graceful swans, gazing little eyes, and delicate flowers that will make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale. It's about spending a day with her in a peaceful meadow, daydreaming and playing as the summer breeze blows.
Second, I'm incredible honored that this is Art Gallery Fabrics first ever organic line of quilting cottons, knits, voile and canvas. Each are 100% GOTS-certified organic and if you think their regular cotton is soft and buttery, just wait until you feel Hello, Ollie. The first time I felt them I wrapped it all around me and snuggled into it's softness!!
Art Gallery Fabrics just released the 58 pageHello, Ollie Lookbook. A fabric project catalog filled with beautiful things to make, patterns and inspiration! Pictured above is my sweet Ollie. :)
Bye bye July, hello beautiful August! This month's calendar collection uses the blossom drift print from my brand new (!!!) fabric collection, Hello, Ollie.
A few things I love most about August: birthday celebrations (we have 6 in our family!), catching fireflies, morning farmer's market visits and sweet summer evenings. What are your favorite things about August?

There have only been a few times in my life when something truly took my breath away. When Where Women Create reached out to me about featuring my workspace and story in there magazine, I jumped for joy and squealed with delight. This has always been my favorite magazine and being invited to join them for the 2016 autumn issue was a dream come true. When I received the advanced copy in the mail a few weeks ago, I slowly pulled it from it's package. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered that I was right there. On the cover! In that moment, my breath was taken away and tears began to fill my eyes.
It is my absolute joy and honor to be a part of such an incredible magazine. Movement, really. It's pages are filled with inspiring stories of extraordinary women. If you're even the slightest bit creative, this is THE magazine you want to get your hands on!
The autumn issue of Where Women Create is where I share my story and how I accomplished my dreams. The article begins ..
My journey begins with my momma, Maxie Ramey. Because of her, my childhood was saturated with creativity. I grew up spending time in her quilt shop, watching her sew and making things alongside her. We spent time learning crafts together, decorating the house and cooking meals. Whenever I wanted to learn a new craft, I knew I could turn to her. From pottery and painting to photography and baking. She has mastered it all! Creativity seems to seep from her pores and it’s through her wisdom, willingness to teach and kind guidance that made me know that my world had to revolve around being creative, too.
To read the rest, you'll have to grab your own issue of Where Women Create (tease tease!). You can get a hard copy of the issue here or subscribe to the digital version!
My dear friend and talented photographer, Callie Lynch, came over one afternoon to take photos of me and my work space for the article. We had so much fun tip-toeing around the house while the babies slept, snapping pictures of all my favorite things.
My top tip for readers was this: Do one small thing every day. When big dreams seem overwhelming, begin reaching towards them by doing just one small thing each day. At the end of a week, a month and a year you will have made giant leaps towards accomplishing them. These will be the steps that will lead you to living your dream!
Because the ladies at Where Women Create are so sweet and thoughtful, they've offered to let me give away 10 (TEN!) free copies of the autumn issue! Enter via the form below, it's as simple as that.
It seems that everywhere I look, people are getting creative with cotton. Traditional stems, garland, wreaths and entire installations like the one pictured above by Annabelle Hickson have me head over heels in love. Somehow, it speaks history. The texture and colors wrap me in a warm summer's day and make me dream of farmhouse living.
I've found a handful of beautiful cotton stems and wreaths - all linked below.
